TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Tap (and cask) @ Three Floyds. Hazy light orange-amber pour with a white head leaving a soapy lace. Pine hop nose, medium body with caramel, toast, spruce, grapefruit and umami - nicely balanced and quite smooth. Finish is short and dry.

"i was lucky enough to pass through Munster on a road trip...what a find. One of the better breweries, and they were missing a couple of their big boys. this is a near perfect pale ale-everything is done just right. Fresh smelling floral hop nose, great malt backbone and balance with a lean towards the hops. best US pale?"

Bottle. Light hazy red, low offwhite head. Citric, pine, light herbal aromatics. Medium light body, light sparkly. Meloinidin, Berrylike, a hint caramel and licorice. Pine and herb bitterness. Light salty finish. Good balance, moreish enough.

Draft at Threefloyds Brew Pub. Pours a deep orange with an off white head that fades. Nose has pine, orange and caramel Malts. Lots of hops and malts in this one. Taste is resinous hops, orange and pine. Dry hoppy bitterness fucking Clinging to the palate. This is pretty damn good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rick_91709 (176) - USA - OCT 17, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Deep gold/copper color. Off white head. Aroma of citrus and sour plums. Bitter grapefruit with some malt sweetness. OK. Not nearly the best pale or IPA. Don't understand the hype on this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HoppityHop (175) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Honestly, this is pretty close to perfect. A little more malt and it would be. Lives up to the hype. Hop aroma followed by more hop aroma. Flavor is citrusy with much less bitterness than you would expect. Easy to put back. Since I don’t ride a 10 speed anymore and I’m not a cutter, it’s the only reason to live in Indiana. Love that it’s 6.66% ABV!

An unusually smooth IPA that meets every expectation. This beer fully deserves the perfect rating.

HopRedHead (383) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle cheers to Guy! Pours dark golden brown. Big aroma of orange, pine, bubblegum and caramel. Lots of hop and malt character, but super balanced. Flavours are sweet orange, grapefruit, loads of caramel and resin. Nice bitter finish, not overpowering. Too good!
